March of Dimes Promotion
The March of Dimes sponsors annual walks across the country each spring, to raise awareness and money to fund research and educational endeavors.
The March of Dimes started as a grassroots organization founded with the help of President Franklin D. Roosevelt as a result of his contracting polio in 1921.
The March of Dimes funded the research to find a cure for polio.
Now The March of Dimes works to treat and prevent premature birth, low birth weight, and birth defects.
Research funded by The March of Dimes has helped develop the 14 childhood immunizations that children receive.
Research has also helped to develop Surfactant, a lifesaving medication given to premature infants to help lung development.
All of the money raised for The March of Dimes stays in the state that raises it,
ALL of the money raised by Team Baby Steps will stay in the state of Delaware to help educate Nurses, Doctors, and most importantly the families and public
Funds will also provide much-needed support to the families who are in the NICU.
